Hi list
is there any way to specify on wich server a user's home is ?   Let me 
explain myself...   I have a Samba3 PDC here at the head office using 
LDAP as an authentication backend. We have offices in other cities and 
we would like them to be on the same domain. All those offices are 
linked using VPNs. I have no problem to configure LDAP and Samba to work 
together. The problem is that i want all those offices to be completely 
independant in case the VPN link goes down. For that, i need to split 
all my user's home between the BDCs and the PDC (depending in wich 
office the user is working), if want the users to still have an access 
to their home and profiles. I have an LDAP master here and a LDAP slave 
in each office. How can i tell samba that depending on the user, its 
home is on a different server ?  Can i use LDAP for that ?  If it's 
possible, how can i do that ?  Should i use an other solution ?  Trusted 
domain instead ?
